Easter, with Leftovers

Easter dawned warm and bathed in sunlight. The perfect Easter day. I hosted thirteen around two tables: aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, my mom, and friends. I was happy it was warm enough for one of those tables to be outside on the deck. This is our first year on this property and it's been a delight to discover the spring flowers that make their home here. The house is bursting with daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths.

And these cuties. My favorite kids. 2014-04-22_002And let's talk Easter leftovers. When there's lots of ham leftover I love to make Nigella's Pasta with Ham, Peas and Cream. Comfort in a bowl. Mmm.
